Baktykan's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy dairy cows to increase her herd and sales of organic milk.
Baktykan is 49 years old, married, and has 3 children. She has a university degree and works as a teacher at a local school. She is well versed in the technical aspects of running an agricultural business and is able to invest as intended. As additional income for her family, she has been raising livestock since 2009. Thanks to her hard work and responsible approach to business, she was able to develop her farm up to 4 cows, and there are 0.43 hectares of irrigated land on which she grows cotton. In order to further develop her farm, she applied to Bai Tushum Bank for a loan of 150,000 KGS to purchase dairy cows in order to increase sales of organic milk and income from livestock breeding. She plans to invest the income from the loan in the further development of her farm.
